Along the way, the show has spawned the Billboard-charting comedy metal band Taintstick (later known as Death! Death! Die!) and the New York Times bestselling autobiography, “I’m Awesome: One Man’s Triumphant Quest to Become the Sweetest Dude Ever.” Joined by Mike Tully, Jason Ellis live features special guest Rachel Wolfson (Jackass Forever) and performances from Dan Weber, Devi Kirsch, Nariko Ott and MORE!

With roast battles, a roast panel, and roasting audience volunteers, the non-stop barbs offer plenty to satisfy your schadenfreude. Forget everything you learned in sensitivity training.
